We are going to be visiting on a Wednesday at the end of October. What should I expect crowd levels to be?

Low to moderate by F&W standards.

I don't think they like to tell this. There is one counter where you pick up reserved tickets. But they also keep a list of events and their current prices to pay day of. We did pay a dollar or two more than the online price

One of our favorite things is the Australian Wine Walkabout. Was that there last year? I hope it comes back this year. Always a blast talking to the wine presenters.

That and the goat cheese tartlet from France. ha
I don't think either of those were there last year

My son and my daughter's boyfriend will be going to the Food and Wine festival with us this year. They both really enjoy their beer. They would like to try many different beers. Do some of the places smaller servings of beer so that you can try more of them?

Also what have been your favorite beers in previous years.

Thanks so much.

Yes. Most places you can get 6oz samples. Great size.

There are normally 3 kiosks devoted (at least mostly) to beer. They have "beer flights" where you can buy three beers for a little bit of a savings over buying the beers separately. Be sure everyone gets their passport so you can keep track of what you have tried.


On a different note, DW and I will still be in Alaska when the reservations for the F&W Festival open. Alaska is 4 hours behind Florida!!! That means we will need to get up at 0-dark-30 to get our call made.

Can you buy a GC with your room key? Then you could pay off the room charges with the original GC.

No, they stopped allowing that a few years ago, which I find really annoying.

This is also not guaranteed. I was there last year right at the opening and people were told all demonstrations for that date were sold out there were no extra tickets on that day so it varies apparently

Glad to find this thread! We are going to be at Epcot on Oct. 23rd, a Wednesday, I'm excited to check out the festival. There will be 4 adults and I've got my DS6 & DS4 going so I am glad to read the "tips", like arriving when Epcot opens!

Def looking forward to the different beers & wines!

Just because I was curious and I knew I still had it... I checked my bill from the Flower Garden Festival this spring. I purchased and refilled my gift card with my room key. Not sure if they have changed back or what????
